Back to the... Drawing Board!

As with Beta anything can and will happen, especially with bugs. To help get rid of some the bugs, we are planning on some changes to the Smashdome. For months now the team have been designing new arenas where players can face bosses at extreme difficulty for new type of rep points 'Honor'! Higher the honor you gain the better the prizes you can claim. Three new arenas have been designed and are ready to be turned into maps. Good and Evil arenas for normal players while the Mega Arena will be members only.

Mega Arena where you face titan size monsters!

The Mega Arena was built into an asteroid in space and entered via the teleport which will be going into the soon to be revised Smashdome. PvP will remain, but battle polls will be removed (but a shop with BP item will remain). The top 5 'all time' score holders will become Player NPC's in Smashdome.

As testing has shown in Marketstreet, the Gremlins have a crazy bug where, at random, it makes them invincible for a random amount of time. We are doing our best to track down the bug so it does not happen again (especially to Mega Bosses!). Popcorn drops will become a quest item, but for now, during the testin' phaze they can be traded in for rare movie plex gear (a few more will be added next week). Then the Blockbuster Event will be permanently replaced with Blockbuster 5D (You may already have seen the movie before buying the ticket and seen movie before it's made, while seeing a dozen movies multiple times! - 5D!). The Candy shop will remain and a new one to be added, the 'Cosplay Shop', where we will add winning movie items (based on the monthly forum poll) to it.

As the art is coming together, I am now am extremely focused on picking the winner for the writing contest, so expect a winner very soon!

One last thing we will have more HeroMart in-game items coming soon!

To be continued...

To clear things up this weeks daily shop has more items added to its database of randomness. Movie Plex will have a seasonal summer event (vs. a random monthly update) "Blockbuster Movie Fest" with items from many different blockbuster movies that happened this year so far. Also adding a perm shop of candy and popcorn themes.

Blockbuster Hit (Gear) Coming to a Future near You!

Hey there, power people! It’s everyone’s favorite Cinderella,

here with your fix of Design Notes!
Fans of the Daily Shop should prepare for a bunch of new items, as we’re preparing for next week’s release of the MoviePlex Blockbuster Event the “Blockbuster Movie Fest”! Yay!

In addition to releasing a bunch of new daily items, we’ll be adding a permanent shop to the MoviePlex: a concession stand filled with popcorn and candy-themed treats!

The Blockbuster event will feature references to several movies, as well as items from well-known summer blockbusters (Flying Squirrel Man anyone?) but once they’re gone they’re gone. Not to fret: we’ll be updating the MoviePlex with nifty items referencing films that come to theaters throughout the year.

Friday 13th!

Its the last Friday the 13th of this year and we added alot of new goodies! drDOT and Wonderp Bread worked hard getting many things as possible done. Already they are working on Movie Plex items and so is Polistar who has been visiting the AE lab this week.

Next week we will be back to working on minor game fixes and Daily Shop updates. Question should we move the Daily (Ramdom) Shop to its own location "The Lost and Found Shop?

Many keep asking for RARES besides the seasonal and event rares. So for only for this Friday 13th and one more time during PumpCON can you get the cool Black Cat Outfit after which will be removed forever!

When the Summer Break Shop ends the Movie Plex will be updated. We have plans to add a perm shop and have Summer Blockbuster Hits seaonal shop (much like the Morph Head Shop and Summer Break Shop). So each Summer not one but many of the blockbuster hit movies will have items that can be found and unlike the Summer Break shop all items in the Blockbuster Hits Shop are perm RARE! Working on game fixes next week will give our artists more time to get many items done as possible. More details shall be explained in upcoming Design Notes.

As our long time players know that Postmaster General is a mod who helps alot with HS testing, but did you know he also loves doing artwork! As of now he will also be making items and learning along side the HS team.

As always enjoy the game and have fun!
